Setting up a legal trust

If you operate your business as a trust, the trustee is legally responsible for its operations. Because the trustee can be a company, this can assist in providing personal asset protection.

Setting up a trust requires a formal trust deed that outlines how the trust operates and administrative work that must be undertaken each year.

Another benefit of trusts, if set up and managed correctly, is they can reduce tax rates through the ability to distribute income to beneficiaries on a much lower, individual tax rate.
